New Student Orientation (NSO)

NSO Groups

This year, our NSO theme is Oregon Native Animal Species. Every NSO group is named after an Oregon native animal. For this year’s NSO, we will conduct programming during the days and evenings in waves, and we have split you into groups based off of your species type- fish, mammals, and birds.  Please pay attention to the species specific programming.
